Go Beyond Giving ~ Connect

Nothing beats seeing the need and meeting the people face to face. We regularly visit our charity partners in Australia, Asia and Africa and we love taking friends with us. Talk to us about coming along.

Overseas immersion trips are the best way to see the need and meet the people. If you haven’t been to a developing country before, it will really expand your horizons.

Varying in cost and length, we will take you to see who we are helping. You won’t come back the same.

Use your Influence

You probably take it for granted that you have the ability to influence people in your networks (friends, family, colleagues, staff, clients, suppliers).

What doors are you able to open for charities that they can’t?

  • make an introduction to the right person,
  • negotiate a better deal on behalf of a charity,
  • promote a charity fundraiser from your platform,
  • add credibility to an application,
  • ask suppliers to donate goods

These actions would cost you nothing but may be priceless to the charity.

Volunteer Your Time

Your time is precious and can be precious to those you give it too. You can volunteer in your area of expertise, or step out and learn a new skill from them.

  • Board roles
  • Pro bono advisory
  • Regular roster
  • Occassional events
  • Corporate days
  • Hold a fundraiser

Relationships are more rewarding than money. Get to know the people you are helping.
